TRUMP - “Who was it who secretly said to Russian…”



Trump Taunts Obama After Denial Of Phone Tapping – “Who was it who secretly said to Russian…”

President Trump reminded followers on Twitter of Barack Obama’s 2012 hot-mic comment that he would be more flexible to negotiate with Russia after the election.

On Saturday, the ex-president denies the sensational phone tapping allegations.


Who was it that secretly said to Russian President, “Tell Vladimir that after the election I’ll have more flexibility?”‘ said Trump, reminding his followers of a hot-mic comment President Obama was overheard in 2012 before his second term.
Moments earlier, he accused the DNC of denying the FBI access to its server to investigate the Russian hack.
‘Is it true the DNC would not allow the FBI access to check server or other equipment after learning it was hacked? Can that be possible?’
The Daily Mail reports,
Obama’s spokesman Kevin Lewis released a statement Saturday afternoon refuting Trump’s wire-tapping claims.

‘A cardinal rule of the Obama administration was that no White House official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice,’ Lewis wrote.
‘As part of that practice, neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false.’
Trump’s suggestion that the DNC denied the FBI access to its servers to investigate the hack goes against earlier claims the bureau simply didn’t try hard enough to look in to it.
In his first interview since the election last month, Clinton campaign manager John Podesta said agents barely tried to warn them of the dangers but were overzealous in their probe of her inappropriate email use.
Podesta said their lackluster approach to the hack and subsequent enthusiasm for a Clinton investigation was proof the FBI wanted her to lose.
The Obama administration’s statement on Saturday which denied tapping Trump’s phones didn’t rule out that another federal agency might have been ordered the surveillance.
The accusations began when Trump tweeted sensationally on Saturday morning: ‘Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!’
